    Went late yesterday afternoon. Food and performers were wonderful as always. Only complaint was that it was inappropriate that Eric Cantor and his very large group of supporters were solicilting votes from guests. The festival was not the place for any politician/candidate to have campaigned as it detracted away from the meaning of the festival and took the attention from those who were performing while there.
